What Makes a Successful Recruiter?


Erin Callaghan, partner at Wilton & Bain, discusses ‘What makes a successful recruiter?’

“Firstly, the ability to build relationships based on trust is key. This is just as important for the candidate as it is for the client if you are to act as an effective interface between the two. Secondly, it’s essential to understand what really drives people in order to go beyond the job description and match more subtle aspects such as culture and behaviours. Finally, commercial nous and in-depth sector expertise. Only then will you be able to help your client find the very best person for the role.”
